Kimi- Good day my friend. What an awesome view and presentation of this old church. The vertical presentation is awesome. The colors are so fasingating with the dark earthtones of the building and the blue of the glass. What a beautiful combination. Added to that is the awesome colors of the sky. I love the lighting and the dark look. Seems to fit the picture so well. Marvelous details show off the masterful architecture of the church. The geometry of the design is amazing. Then there is the beautiful textures you brought out.
Stunning work
Have yourself a wonderful day, take care, please be safe. #6305723
